The pitching phenom of last summer's Little League World Series is asking that the player who insulted her over Twitter gets reinstated to play ball for his collegiate team, according to the Washington Post.

Mo'ne Davis stood out at the 2014 Little League World Series as one of two competing females. She threw a shutout game to get her team, Philadelphia Little League team the Taney Dragons, to the famed tournament.

Adding to her athletic prowess is the utter class with which she is handled an extremely offensive tweet from another player.

Joey Casselberry was dismissed from the Bloomsburg University team after tweeting: "Disney is making a movie about Mo'Ne Davis? WHAT A JOKE. That slut got rocked by Nevada [in the LLWS]."

Davis, who appears mature upon her years, offered a gracious response.

"Everyone makes mistakes and everyone deserves a second chance," Davis said. "I know he didn't mean it in that type of way, and I know a lot of people get tired of like seeing me on TV but just think about what you're doing before you actually do it. I know right now he's really hurt and I know how hard he worked just to get where he is right now."

What do you think of Mo'ne Davis' response? Would you let your daughter play baseball?
